Leona Lewis: 'I see Liam Payne whenever I can'

'Bleeding Love' sensation Leona Lewis has admitted that while she isn't in a relationship with One Direction's Liam Payne, their friendship has definitely blossomed.

Speaking at the Marmite Oxford Street Christmas Lights switch-on yesterday (November 5) in London, the songstress explained that they make time for each other where their busy schedules allow:

"We're friends. We see each other whenever we can, but he's really busy and so am I. We've got a shared bond because of The X Factor. I always forget they were even on the show!"

Back in October, Lewis told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper that she won't confirm or deny what's going on between herself and Payne, but she is excited by the prospect of romance because "you never know where things might end up":

"All I’ll say about the rumours of me dating Liam from One Direction is you never know where things might end up if they’re given half a chance. Other than that, I’ve never been one to talk about my personal life, because it’s important to keep a little bit of yourself sacred."
